There are 100s of moisturizers which one can use. There is no difference which one you select as along as the moisturizer is oil based. Even the cheapest oil based moisturizers work just as well as the most expensive creams.

Some moisturizers have menthol as an ingredient. Menthol is well known to give a cooling and a soothing feeling to the lips. Other lip moisturizers may contain camphor. This chemical may help relieve pain.

Select a lip moisturizer which contains beeswax or petrolatum. These oil based lip balms and creams are the most efficient at treating dry lips

Today, lip products have become fancier and have varied names with exotic chemicals in them. Some contain cocoa butter and lanolin. There is no difference whether you use cocoa butter or petrolatum jelly to cover your lips. More expensive is not always better, but is almost always more expensive

It is important to apply these lip balms regularly and frequently if one has chapped lips.
